ANOTHER PIED PIPER 

This is a day when "science falsely so called" (I Timothy 6:20) is 
attempting to destroy the faith of students in the Word of God. To 
combat the teaching of organic evolution as a fact, William Jennings 
Bryan fought his last fight; to bear high the torch that he lit is the 
aim of the University founded in his honor.

FOREWORD 

Since the University started with Freshmen only in 1930 and added 
one class each year, the class of '37, which enrolled as freshmen in 1933, 
completed the first four-class student body. 

With the graduation of this class — the last class of the first student 
generation — it is fitting that we should pause to review the history of 
the school since its inception during the last days of Mr. Bryan's life 
to the present progress made in establishing a living memorial to the 
Great Commoner on beautiful Bryan Hill. To gi~ve this brief review and 
to record some of the events of the 1936-37 term is the purpose of this 
book. 

Pictures of faculty members are arranged in order of seniority. The 
quotations are taken from addresses given by visiting chapel speakers.

A Call to the Colors 

Challenging such atheistic leaders as Clarence Darrow, Dudley Field 
Malone, and H. L. Mencken, Mr. Bryan defended the Word of God in 
the famed Anti-Evolution Trial of 1925. 

On Sunday, July 26, shortly after the close of the trial, Mr. Bryan 
quietly passed away at the home of the then mayor of Dayton, Dr. 
Richard Rogers.

Bryan Hill 

Shortly before his death, Mr. Bryan suggested that a fundamental, 
inter-denominational school be founded in Dayton. A nation-wide 
subscription campaign was begun, and the campus was located on a 
wooded hill overlooking Dayton. 

Ground was formally broken on the eighty-four-acre campus for the 
Administration Building on November 5, 1927, by the late Dr. John 
Roach Straton, pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, New York.

ON LEAVING BRYAN 



When I think of how my Bryan days are done, 

A brief four years that vanished like a dream, 

And that one calling which is like a gleam 

Says, "Onward!" though my soul to leave does shun 

As birds do ere first flying or like one 

Who stops to rest before he cross a stream — 

Will Jesus lend me now His guiding beam? 

I need not ask. For since the Christ has run 

His bright course in this world, that Light not fails; 

Who follow Him shall not in darkness walk, 

But they shall have the shining Light of life. 

Whose face is that with fear and terror pales? 

Not, surely, one that with our Lord does talk. 

Lead on ! I follow Thee to win the strife ! 

— E. H. Reid.

First Academic Building 

Work on the main building being stopped by the depression, the 
administration voted to open classes in the vacant Rhea Central High 
School building. 

Academic work was launched on September 8, 1930, the opening 
service being held in the very courtroom in which Bryan won over 
Darrow. The Great Commoner scored another posthumous victory 
when the initial Bible class — in the Genesis account of creation — was 
held in the room where Scopes had taught Darwinian evolution. 

Members of the first faculty were Dr. George E. Guille, President; 
Prof. Malcolm Lockhart, Vice-President; Prof. F. W. Spindler, Dean; 
Prof. D. W. Ryther, Jr.; Prof. A. P. Bjerregaard; Miss Julia Anna Yan- 
cey, and Prof, and Mrs. C. A. Montoya. The initial enrollment was 
twenty-three.

Cedar Hill Dormitory 

Until January, 1932, teachers and students lived in town. In that 
month, the practically new Cedar Hill hospital building was leased. 
It accommodates the young women and part of the faculty, and the 
basement serves as a dining hall. 

Cedar Hill is the center of the social good times enjoyed by the 
Bryan family.

GEORGE E. GUILLE 
MINISTERIAL 
ASSOCIATION 

By the grace of God, the outside activities of the Ministerial Asso- 
ciation were increased during the 1936-37 school year, the members 
doing Christian work both in Dayton and in the surrounding country- 
side. 

Revival campaigns kept members busy for a part of the year. The 
regular Saturday evening street meetings and prayer services were well 
attended. 

Ministerial students spoke at the Monday morning chapel services. 
At the meetings of the Association on Monday evenings, Miss Lyster 
spoke on subjects relating to the work of the group.

DEBATING CLUB 

The largest student organization on Bryan Hill, the Debating Club, 
during the present school year has given a chapel program every 
Saturday morning to entertain students, teachers and visitors. 

The program chiefly consisted of debates, such as "Resolved, that 
courtship during the horse and buggy days was more romantic than 
in the days of the Ford V-8," "That electric utilities should be govern- 
mentally owned," and "That married women should not hold salaried 
positions." 

Many variety programs were also given by the club, to the delight 
of all present.

THE SINGERS 

The girls' sextet, mixed quartet, male quartet, and choral class 
were organized in the fall for training and fellowship in music and to 
work in co-operation with the other extension activities of the Uni- 
versity. 

Musical programs were given in Trion and Pleasant Grove, Georgia, 
and Chattanooga, Rockwood, Pikeville, Sale Creek, Kingston, Harri- 
man, Tyner, Graysville, Charleston, Dunlap, Oakdale and Spring City, 
Tennessee. Local appointments included the churches of Dayton, 
University services on Bryan Hill, and the University's Sunday School 
points. 

At Christmas, the cantata, "The Greatest Gift," by H. W. Petrie, 
was presented at the First Baptist Church, Dayton, and at Easter, the 
cantata, "Everlasting Life," by Mrs. R. R. Forman, was given in 
Graysville and at the local Cumberland Presbyterian Church. 

Miss Yancey, Miss Beekman and Mrs. Fish were the accompanists for 
the group; Miss Lyster and Dean Ryther were directors. 



'Humility is always unconscious" — Dr. Harris H. Gregg

In twenty-one places members of the University family carried on 
regular Christian work during the school year. These included nine 
Sunday Schools in the vicinity of Dayton in which an average of three

students and faculty members worked each week, seven churches where 
students were pastors, and five churches in Dayton in which Bryan folks

The Octagon 



Begun in the fall of 1932, the boys' dormitory was completed by 
Thanksgiving of that year. 

Built largely by the boys themselves, it is eight-sided, as the name 
indicates, every room having an outside window and also opening into 
the central lobby. 

The interior of the building, which is steam heated, is finished in 
hunting lodge fashion.

Administration Building 

In the spring of 1935 the students — to a man — signed a paper petition- 
ing the administration to recommence work on the foundation on 
Bryan Hill, which had stood idle, with the exception of office space 
enclosed in July, 1931, since the last concrete was poured in 1929. 

On a pay-as-you-go basis and with the help of student labor, six 
rooms were enclosed on the ground floor that summer, and school was 
opened in our own property for the first time that fall. During the 
summer of 1936 another classroom was enclosed, and a large reading 
room was added to the 30,000-volume library; a steam heating plant 
was installed during the 1936-37 school year.
